Stanway and Stanton


4 November 2003


As Teresa has been feeling much better, we undertake a little local sightseeing.  Earlier in the year, I showed Helen and Juliet around two of our neighbouring villages, Stanway and Stanton.  We returned to take some pictures.



The village church of St Peter in Stanway


Gatehouse to Stanway House


Stanway House is a 17th Century manor house, open to the public during the summer months and the residence of Lord Niedpath


More about Stanway House



St Peter’s church – interior looking east


Stanway House from the neighbouring churchyard – the large window is of the banqueting hall


St Peter’s church – exterior looking west




Stanton – the main street


Stanton, lying within a private estate, is notably lacking in overt modernisation and commercialisation, thus preserving the appearance of a picture-book Cotswold village




Stanton – the village green


St Michael’s church – interior looking east






Probably built on the site of a Saxon church, the church of St Michael and All Angels dates from the 12th Century, two Norman arches surviving in the nave, though most of the fabric was added or restored in the 15th Century or later
